49 – ‘Twas the night before Christmas

December 24, 2009

My uncle Michael and his partner Charlie made me this fantastically wonderful 2010vanfan gingerbread cookie! How amazing?! I have my own blog cookie! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the shops,

Many mittens were heading to homes to stuff socks.

The shirts and the hats had been hung with such care,

For all of the shoppers that were sure to be there.

The associates were cheerful and happily said

That visions of 2010 danced in their heads.

While I in my santa hat dashed here and dashed there,

I saw that everyone was happy and smiling with care.

You’ll hear me proclaim every day and each night,

Our athletes are coming with pride and with might!

Vancouver 2010 we welcome you as you draw near,

and celebrate you with our holiday cheer!

    That cookie is fantastic. Are you going to eat it? If not, hopefully you can preserve it forever. Love your poem.

    Merry Christmas Andrea and have a wonderful day off from ‘Mitten Madness’.
